Stay at Brewster House for the Super Bowl (February 3, 2008), and watch the game on a big screen TV, while we supply the pizza and soft drinks. Shop during the day at L.L. Bean and over 160 other shops and restaurants in Freeport. Advance reservations required. No discounts accepted for this special.
The long-time Mainers (some say Maniacs) tell us that, unlike last winter, this will be a "real" Maine winter.
The weather is certainly giving a good imitation of it, at least so far! In addition to our dusting of snow before Thanksgiving, and the first snow that gave us almost a foot of coverage a week or so ago, we have had more snow several times this week, with more predicted before Christmas. We may well have a white Christmas in Freeport!
Following a beautiful - if somewhat chilly - Sparkle Weekend (November 30 - December 2 for 2007 - for 2008 it will be December 5-7), with lots of sales, great shopping, L.L. Bean's Northern Lights, fireworks, a parade, dozens of tubas playing Christmas carols, theater, and a warm and cozy B&B Open House, we had our first real snow of the winter.
OK, for the purists, we had a little dusting of snow just before Thanksgiving, but the grass was more green than white, so that doesn't really count, does it?
